Needing to eat gluten, dairy, nut and/or egg free? If so, you may want to visit the newly opened True Bistro in Teele Square, Somerville. This upscale vegan restaurant features flavorful, gourmet, plant-based food that is sure to please vegans as well the carnivore crowd.
I’m pleased to see they’ve recently added a gluten-free menu ! This menu offers selections for lunch and dinner, including seasonal soups, salads, entrees and dessert (a few raw choices offered too). Be sure to inquire about the suggested wine pairings to accompany your meal. There is also a nut-free menu which clearly acknowledges that they “cannot accomodate” severe tree nut allergies. Not sure what to say about that. An allergy is an allergy whether it is severe or mild. And the severity of a past nut reaction is no indication of what could potentially occur with a future reaction.
On a more positive note, those with peanut allergies will find solace in the fact that True Bistro does not use peanuts in any of their dishes!
Open for lunch (Tues-Fri), dinner and brunch.
